VASA MIHICH "LACMA BRICK" SCULPTURE, 1982

In 1982, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (known as "LACMA") commissioned Vasa Mihich to create a multiple for their fundraising gala. 

Vasa created this notable, and very rare, sculpture. There were 150 examples, but with many variations within the edition, of both color and the density/arrangement of the floating grid of black squares. 

This is a particularly excellent example from an important era in Vasa's career. Here Vasa uses one of his favourite colors, a sharp violet, in one of his signature forms (the rectangle or "brick"). What makes this work particularly rare is the geometric grid pattern created through violet and black inside the sculpture. It's an arresting sculpture which recalls Op Art. The sides of the rectangle feature different angles of the gridlines to create a convergence effect when viewed straight on.

Caviar20 has long championed Vasa Mihich; both his editioned pieces, his major sculptures and smaller vintage pieces alike. He remains one of the best Los Angeles sculptors to emerge in the late 1960's working in acrylic.
